Worsening overgrown pavement on A4010

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 22:23, Wednesday 15 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5979583.

This issue was apparently resolved by today’s date but it clearly hasn’t. The photos above were taken on today’s date and shows that the hedges, trees and grass have grown even more aggressively and are now completely covering the pavement.

The pavement on the Southern/Eastern side of Risborough Road (directly opposite Grove Lane) is becoming very popular and regularly used but it is almost impassable in this area. It’s the stretch of the pavement between 4 Crown Cottages and the area between Grove Lane and Stewart Hall. The issue has been there for years and the bushes/growth really need to be taken back to allow walkers, wheelchairs and pushchairs to walk freely - especially when crossing this busy road to get to the train station, Great Kimble or other new developments around the A4010. Thank you ever so much.
